Since we started appFigures three years ago it’s matured quite a bit, growing from a small side project into the largest app tracking platform out there.
As our user-base has grown we’ve watched the platform become a sort of standard for sharing app data between different teams and with third parties. Folks who want to share their apps with colleagues set them up as sub users, and third party services use the appFigures API to make sharing data with them easy.
While these are great ways to collaborate, we realized that most members could use an easier way to share, one that doesn’t require the obligation of adding a sub user or writing code to hook up with the API.
So today I’m excited to introduce the new app sharing feature.
Very simply, you can now let other appFigures members view your apps alongside their own. You can choose the specific apps and date range to share, and even set an expiration date.
We designed it to be secure and really easy to use. It’s now a breeze to share your apps with colleagues, publishers, promoters, investors, and even your grammie. We can’t wait to see how people use it.
Here’s how it works:
There’s a new section in the ‘Account’ page called Sharing:
There you can manage what you’re sharing and what others are sharing with you.
To get started create a new share group:
You can choose a specific set of apps to share, or check the ‘Share all products’ option and the list will always be updated with newly added apps.
To invite someone to a share group add their personal email address to the list. They’ll get an invitation to see your data in their appFigures account (if they have multiple accounts they’ll be able to choose which one they want to use). If they don’t have an appFigures account we’ll invite them to join.
That’s about all there is to it. You can read all the details over on the FAQ.
